to their seats, including the man expected to be the next secretary of state, john kerry, from massachusetts. if they seem dressed fairly lightly, there are some regional -- there's john mccain, dianne feinstein, there's some regional heaters in that area. there are blankets provided, as we heard. andrea mitchell is there. we'll keep alternating between this camera and the white house doorway so we don't miss a thing. and andrea, you're seeing the senate leadership fill in. >> yeah. just as senator kerry is coming in and some of the other senators, let me give you an idea of the schedule. there will be a change of power at the state department, as you know, on wednesday of this week. hillary clinton is going before the senate and the house. she's going to be here today in her role both as a former first lady and as the secretary of state. she's going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. on thursday before the committee that he chairs still, senator kerry will be introduced by secretary clinton for his confirmation hearing. we're told then that the vote on senator kerry as secretary of
broadly, on national security, we will enter the beginning of confirmation hearings for john kerry as secretary of state, chuck hagel as secretary of defense. consideration of our military strategy, our military spending, how we project american power as we complete a winding down of the war in afghanistan. it is really going to be the end of a post-9/11 period in national security policy, with the policy going for it from there still unsettled. guest: the will still be a focus on the issues of national security, what just happened in algeria, the issue of al qaeda not being as weak a forceful as president obama campaign on. i think republicans will point that out. if we lost american lives again last week. so what are we doing to keep al qaeda at bay? that will be part of the discussion during the confirmation hearings and certainly with mrs. clinton's appearance tomorrow. host: on the issue of foreign policy, what will be president obama's legacy? where will the focus in his second term? guest: looking back over the first term, he did wind down the war in iraq. he's in the proces
of the things that the senate will be doing over the next weeks and months is the confirmations, and john kerry's hearing for secretary of state to be later this month and thought to be a shoo-in, but how realistic to be an opportunity for republicans to air grievances about the president's foreign policy? >> geared more towards chuck hagel ironically, because senator ker are ri iry is respe the democratic and the republican side and he has the credentials so they will hold the fire for chuck hagel who is going to be secretary of defense. >> and you said that chuck hagel brings up the next topic, the conservative group america future fund, and they have produced a tv spot blasting chuck hagel and his supporter senator chuck schumer that is going to air on cable outlets and this is a look at a it and the left is not happy with hagel either and they have a use your mandate saying that he is a bad choice for women and gays and support for israel. what is chuck hagel's confirmation hearing going to look like? >> this is going to be the opportunity for republicans who were obviously unhappy with the
of state, john kerry, and chuck hagel, which he has gone a lot of flak for it, to the secretary of defense? >> those are promising choices. john kerry may finally liberate himself with a push from chuck a goal. they are going to have to take on the military-industrial complex and reduce those mass of weapons systems that were designed for a soviet-peristyle hostility like the f-22 and nuclear subs. they're going have to cut the military budget down from its $800 billion, and get out of afghanistan and iraq. and whether they have the chemistry and the political fortitude to do so, it remains to be seen. but i think they are a better choice than their predecessors. i think john kerry will be better than hillary clinton, who had to be macho all the time. and panetta, chuck hagel will be better than panetta, who was kind of a fill in. and spent weekends back in california where he really wants to retire. there is a little promise there. but again, it requires the resurgence of mass demonstrations in washington this spring to develop a convergent policy from the militarization of foreign-policy
